Proteoglycan fragments in knee joint fluid after exercise

Abstract

The concentration of cartilage proteoglycan fragments in knee joint fluid was measured before and after one event of physical exercise in 33 healthy athletes. Nine athletes ran on a treadmill for 60 min, 16 ran on road for 80 min and 8 played one soccer game (90 min). Before exercise, the levels of proteoglycan fragments in the athlete joint fluid were lower than in a previously analyzed reference group. After exercise, the concentration of proteoglycan fragments increased in all of the 7 athletes that could be directly compared before and after exercise. This increased concentration of proteoglycan fragments in the joint fluid could be an effect of mechanical loading of the cartilage in combination with a possible high turn-over rate... (More)

The concentration of cartilage proteoglycan fragments in knee joint fluid was measured before and after one event of physical exercise in 33 healthy athletes. Nine athletes ran on a treadmill for 60 min, 16 ran on road for 80 min and 8 played one soccer game (90 min). Before exercise, the levels of proteoglycan fragments in the athlete joint fluid were lower than in a previously analyzed reference group. After exercise, the concentration of proteoglycan fragments increased in all of the 7 athletes that could be directly compared before and after exercise. This increased concentration of proteoglycan fragments in the joint fluid could be an effect of mechanical loading of the cartilage in combination with a possible high turn-over rate of the cartilage matrix in the athletes.
